I have seen this referred to as the 'View Menu' for a view within a dashboard. I can't find a Tableau help page that uses that terminology, though. (It just shows where it is in an image.)
I don't think there is a way to move it. However, it will only appear if you have selected (clicked inside) a particular view. You can click a different view (or the top level of your Item Hierarchy in the Layout pane) to make it 'go away'.
In that case, yes, adding a little padding would work. Alternately, you could change that menu to a Single Value (dropdown), but that makes the selections less visible to the end user.
Sorry; I see how that's a nuisance. You should definitely let Tableau know your concerns and bring it up in the Ideas section (to move the orientation back to horizontal, or position it within the same view rather than outside it.)

Hi Michael Hesser,
I have reached to our support team to provide you with the following:
- Question 1: Try unselecting the current sheet in your dashboard, and it should disappear
- Question 2: We would use the term "sheet toolbar"
Let me know if you need further assistance

While unselecting the sheet DOES, technically, make it "go away"-- it also means an extra drag-and-click is necessary for me to get the full use out of my dashboard.
Brent Mathison's suggested use of Presentation Mode (F7) seems to be the best option (and after all these years of using Tableau, today is the first day I've actually had the need to use it!) I may also look into some of these great new padding features.
