Managing your tab size rendering preference

You can manage the number of spaces a tab is equal to for your personal account.

  1. In the upper-right corner of any page on GitHub, click your profile photo, then click Settings.
  2. In the left sidebar, click Appearance.
  3. Scroll down to "Tab size preference" and use the dropdown menu to choose your preference.
