Tabbed forms offer a useful way to make forms and related lists take up much less space, reducing the scrolling that must be done to navigate the form.
Form Sections and Related Lists are tabbed separately, each with their own tab line. A user always sees the first form section. Everything else after that can be tabbed.
2 Displaying Tabbed Forms
Display of tabbed forms is controlled by the tabbed.forms user preference (User Administration --> User Preferences). The preference affects all forms, it is not specific to each form. A System user preference with the name tabbed.forms specifies whether the tabbed UI is used by default for all users. A user sets their own preference by toggling tabs on or off for their forms.
The tabs toggle icon appears on any form with more than two sections, and any form with more than one related list.
