802.1x & Windows Clients

We would like to introduce 802.1x on our Cisco switches. The environment consists of various devices (printers, phones, scanners etc) which may or may not be 802.1x aware. I know that we can use MBAC to get them to authenticate using MAC addresses, however I'm wondering what needs to be done for the users desktops and laptops.

The users devices are all Windows 10. Does the operating system have the relevant configuration/controls/software already built-in or do you need specific supplicant software installed to get it to work? I'm speculating we could install a RADIUS server on an existing Windows server (2012) to provide the AAA aspect? Are there any good articles that describe how to set it all up?

Just one other question. If your user workstations network connections piggy-back off a phone, how would authentication work there?
