what does the drawing pin / thumbtack do?

Having a play with kde plasma 5. I have not used kde for about 10 years.
Much has changes in that time. I can't figure out what the purpose of the
drawing pin / thumb tack on the top left corner of a window. Somebody
please reveal it's purpose, or point me in the direction of an appropriate
web site.
