In the Pages widget, you can decide which pages will have links and the order that they will appear. By checking the "Add new Pages by default" box, you can also choose whether you want the links to be automatically created for static pages whenever you create them.

For those who have customized their template, they may not automatically support Pages as horizontal "tabs". So to add this feature, go to Layout > Edit HTML and check the Expand Widget Templates box.

Now find:

<div id='crosscol-wrapper' style='text-align:center'>
<b:section class='crosscol' id='crosscol' showaddelement='no'/>
</div>

and change showaddelement='no' to showaddelement='yes'.

If the above HTML does not exist, then paste the following codes after <div id="content-wrapper"> (default position).

<div id='crosscol-wrapper' style='text-align:center'>
<b:section class='crosscol' id='crosscol' showaddelement='yes'/>
</div>

Lastly, Preview your template for any errors and save it. You will get horizontal links now.
