Default Drop caps in Indesign

Hi all, forgive me if this has been answered, but I couldn't find it anywhere, I'm also new to Indesign.

I'm just curious about the drop caps in Indesign, is it possible to do like the first example in my attachment without manually setting first line -10 indent and the rest of the paragraph +10 indent, and then forcing a hard linebreak to reset the indent for the rest of the text ?

The old typographer in me cringes when I see the default result Indesign gives me.
