Will disabling SMBv1 on Server 2008R2 DC effect Win 10 PCs with SMBv1 enabled

Due to old production software and XP clients, SMBv1 has remained enabled, even though a Windows Update was supposed to remove it.
Now that there are only Windows 10 PCs as clients ( over 100 all needed to have SMBv1 enabled) I want to disable SMBv1 on the server.
Can anyone comment on whether Windows 10 will automatically start using SMBv2 to communicate with the server, and it's network shares when they log onto the domain again, once I disable SMBv1 on the DC?
If there weren't so many client PCs involved, I'd just go ahead and do it, but am concerned about a disastrous outcome.

All thoughts and suggestions greatly appreciated.

Thanks in Advance
