It’s a breadcrumb.

Quoting Wikipedia :

A breadcrumb or breadcrumb trail is a graphical control element frequently used as a navigational aid in user interfaces and on web pages. It allows users to keep track and maintain awareness of their locations within programs, documents, or websites. The term originates from the trail of bread crumbs left by Hansel and Gretel in the fairy tale of the same name.
