Hello,

besides the fact that this site is about LibreOffice (and not OpenOffice):

General solution on all operating systems

  • Start in Safe Mode using Help -> Restart in Safe Mode and confirm the restart using button: Restart
  • Archive your profile expanding Advanced (click on the word Advanced right above Help button) and click Archive User Profile button
  • Click button Open Containing Folder
  • Copy file libreoffice-profile.zip to some save place
  • Recommendation Rename the file to some name indicating the time you've taken the backup (e.g. libreoffice-profile-2020-05-09.zip)

Manual solution for Linux

  • Open a terminal program (konsole, gnome-terminal, etc.)
  • Change to the profile directory: cd $HOME/.config/libreoffice/4/user
  • Execute: tar -cvpf $HOME/Documents/LibreOffice-UserProfile-2020-05-09.tar .

Manual solution for macOS

  • Open a terminal
  • Change to the profile directory: cd $HOME/Library/Application Support/LibreOffice/4/user
  • Execute: tar -cvpf $HOME/Documents/LibreOffice-UserProfile-2020-05-09.tar

Manual solution for Windows

  • Open File Explorer (aka "Windows Explorer")
  • Type %appdata%\libreoffice\4\ into File Explorer address bar
  • Right click on User -> Send to -> Compressed (zipped) folder (creates a file called user.zip
  • Copy file user.zip to some save place
  • Recommendation Rename the file to some name indicating the time you've taken the backup (e.g. user-2020-05-09.zip)

Hope that helps.
