Scrolling

In case you have too many tabs, you can easily make the tabstrip scrollable by setting the ScrollChildren  property to "True".

The scroll buttons can be positioned to the left, right, or sideways (one to the left and one to the right) of the tabstrip. Button positioning is controlled by the ScrollButtonsPosition property.

When scrolling, the tabstrip can be set to advance smoothly or per tab (where the tabstrip advances with one complete tab to the left or to the right at a time). This behavior is controlled by the PerTabScrolling property.

When used on touch-enabled device, the tabs could be scolled via "swipe" gesture.

Multi-Rows Tabs

Another alternative to reduce the size is to arrange the tabs in two (or more) rows, by setting the IsBreak property on a specific tab which will force the rest of the tabs to be shown on the next row.
