Oh no. No.

"progressive disclosure control" is meaningless jargon to the average person.

You tell someone "click the progressive disclosure control icon" and they'd be: "WHAT?!?!?!"

They are "progressive disclosure controls" or "progressive-disclosure
controls" if you want to fix Microsoft's punctuation:

Many web sites these days use a triangle-shaped icon ... click it, and
it
rotates 90 degrees to display something (text, links, etc.) that was
previously hidden.
I call them "twist controls" but one of my SMEs says they are
"accordion"
controls.
What do my fellow tech whirlers refer to these as?
