Tabs is a page component consisting of clickable headings (tabs) that control the visibility of sections of content. Clicking on a tab heading will show the content associated with that heading.

Be mindful of the number of tabs in a group; tabs should not exceed a single row on desktop screen sizes (on smaller/mobile devices, the tab layout automatically change to an accordion display). If you have several tabs or the titles of the tabs are long, causing the tab titles to exceed a single row, use vertical tabs or accordions instead. If you must have more tabs, consider using instead, or splitting the content into multiple pages.

Example of incorrect usage (too many tabs):
