i have not encountered anything native to windows 10 that opens .jp2;

Regarding Windows 10:

Not sure if it does .jp2 but doesn't seem promising.

that's why i'm trying so many third-party softwares - the latest being  .. and this latest too does not seem like it's
friendly to a tablet with touchpad keyboard or else i don't understand
how to work it: it's requiring an immense time to create thumbnails for
the 517 .jp2 pages; and i see no way to use its slideshow feature
without first creating these thumbnails; and i see no way to view this
book without using the slideshow feature.

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.

i tried using the gimp 2.8 .scm that Bob mentioned; the script's window
does indeed appear but i can't understand how to operate that either!

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.

What's the difference between a viewer and a converter?

    "In Windows Vista [ajnd presumably later version of Windows], the path
    to the GIMP scripts folder is C:\Users\Your User

    It might even be ".gimp-2.8" if you have a later version of GIMP.

    Put the .scm file there then start GIMP.

    But as others have suggested it's probably better to use a simpler image
    viewer. I don't use Windows much now, but I imagine the Microsoft image
    viewer included with Windows should have a means of simply going to the
    next image. Probably arrows left/right somewhere on a toolbar.
