Is there any way to set all of the tabs on Quicktabs to closed or inactive by default?

I would like, that if I visit the page then the first Quicktab isn't open by default. In this inherited site there are images and content underneath this open tab that I would like visible instead of an opened tab.

Would I have to implement something using JavaScript or is there a better option beside Quicktabs?

Quicktabs Version: 7.x-3.8 | Drupal Version: 7.57

I think that you might need to add some jQuery to your theme.

Here is a way to do it.

    jQuery("#id-of-my-custom-block h3:first").trigger('click');
