Regarding Windows 10:
Not sure if it does .jp2 but doesn't seem promising.

Irfanview has a plugin that includes JPEG2000 (plugin zip file #2,
"formats"). Try that.
When you have an image open in Irfanview, the top tool bar should have
left and right arrows for moving to the next image.

File|Sequential|Open First File... to navigate to the directory and open
the first file. But the script does not include .jp2 files in its list.
Probably easy to modify the script to do that as it is a text file).
GIMP 2.8 itself will open .jp2 files. And to avoid having to always do
File|Sequential... etc. you'd also want to assign a shortcut key to
close and open the next file.
But that all seems as if it's getting to be too much.
For Windows, Irfanview is excellent, so I'd be spending my efforts
getting that to work. You'll probably end up using it for other things, too.
