Newer generations of Intel® Wireless Adapters support fast roaming with 802.11r, 802.11k, and 802.11v on Windows® 10. No set up is required on the client (Wi-Fi adapter) side. Fast roaming is automatically enabled on the client with a supported Intel Wireless Adapter on Windows® 10, when connected to a fast roaming enabled Wi-Fi network.

Note Older versions of Windows such as 7 and 8.1 don't support fast roaming with 802.11r, 802.11k, and 802.11v.
Windows® 10 currently doesn't support 802.11r with Pre-Shared-Key (PSK) and Open Networks.
