TenantGroupName     : Default Tenant Group
TenantName          : contoso
HostPoolName        : contosoHostPool
AppGroupName        : officeApps
RemoteAppName       : Excel
FilePath            : C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\EXCEL.EXE

PS C:\> New-RdsRemoteApp -TenantName "contoso" -HostPoolname "contosoHostPool" -AppGroupName "webApps" -Name "internetExplorerContosoWebApp" -FilePath "C:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe" -FriendlyName "Contoso Web App" -IconPath "C:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe"

TenantGroupName     : Default Tenant Group
TenantName          : contoso
HostPoolName        : contosoHostPool
AppGroupName        : webApps
RemoteAppName       : internetExplorerContosoWebApp
FilePath            : C:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
AppAlias            :
CommandLineSetting  : DoNotAllow
Description         :
FriendlyName        : Contoso Web App
IconIndex           : 0
IconPath            : C:\Program Files\internet explorer\iexplore.exe
RequiredCommandLine :
