When using the arrows to navigate to the next picture nomacs will try to load lnk files (windows shortcuts) producing an error.

cannot reproduce this on Win8 (are the shortcut image shortcuts)? -> e.g. img001.png.lnk
[EDIT] I could reproduce it on Win10 - we'll address this as soon as win10 is officially out

I can confirm this problem on Windows 7. It's happening for basic program shortcuts so as for file shortcuts.
