The file is there for a purpose and will be deleted automatically when OpenOffice is properly closed. Turn off "viewing of hidden and archive files" if you don't wish to see it.

Do not mess with this until _you_ know what and why _you_ are doing it.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 20.04.1 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
