I can’t figure out what the icon between my settings and lock-screen icon in Gnome3 is supposed to do.
I am using GNOME 3.18.1 on Arch Linux 4.2.5-1-ARCH x86_64 on a Dell E6530 laptop. Since I installed this OS years ago, the power button on my laptop has always led my OS to completely power down.

On my Debian system I’ve customized my Gnome (Shell) keyboard shortcuts, via System Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts.

7 instead of selecting all text till the beginning of the line.
In my ~/.bashrc and ~/.profile I have some variables set to some filepaths:
I.e. what I want is the Linux equivalent of Windows
