    Generally the .lnk file are shortcut, which was made on windows OS erstwhile. They are basically pointers to a file which is located in another drive in windows OS. Probably you inserted a flash/external drive on Mac, while earlier this worked on windows OS. If this is the case, unless the drive is connected to the same device, the .lnk files are useless and won't be opened. Assuming you copied the shortcuts to the intended file on Mac OS. .lnk files can only be opened on windows & not for Mac.

    You can open .lnk files using the app called Wine. It adds some basic Windows compatibility to your system.

    WINE is a free to use software. It is not so good as I used erstwhile. It requires so many DLL files that can not installed properly by WINE. While CrossOver is better, but it is not free.
