You can customize the toolbar to add the Increase Indent and the
Decrease Indent icons:

Edit -> Preferences -> Interface -> Toolbar -> Customize Toolbar

Click each of the icons in the left frame and then click the right
arrow in the middle. If you don't like where they ended up on the
toolbar, you can drag them to a different location.

Once those are in place, you can select any text and press either one
of them to indent or remove the indent of all of the selected text by
one tab for each click of the icon.
