How do I get rid of this explorer hierarchy attaching to the top of my main editor window (see nested toolbar right between tab and code text).
right click yields no options. Resetting to default perspective does not remove it either. Click-hold and drag, does not seem to move it.

See screenshot attached. The errant menu is also glowing in an obnoxious yellow.
This is running the most current release of Eclipse Neon (Java) 4.6.0 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Also, this is my first post due to failure searching for a solution via Google or help menus, so if I'm posting in the wrong place, please just let me know in the comments. Thanks.

That's the "Breadcrumb" that shows the workspace-relative path of the resource in the editor. You can read a little about its features: http://help.eclipse.org/neon/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.jdt.doc.user%2Freference%2Fref-java-editor-breadcrumb.htm

There's a toolbar button to toggle it on/off - in your screenshot that button is just to the left of the "highlighter" toolbar button. The help page also shows a picture of the button.
