This layout uses dropdown accordions
to display settings options. Each accordion represents a category or section of settings, and users can expand or collapse each accordion to view or hide the options within. It is useful for applications with numerous settings categories, as it allows for a compact display of information.
For example, Gmail adopts an accordion layout for its settings, where users can expand and collapse different categories such as General, Labels, Inbox, and Chat. This allows users to focus on specific settings sections while keeping the interface visually clean and organized.
