Go back to the Favorites section where you will now see Word 2016. Move your cursor over it and click on the three dots that appear which will give you a list of options.

Click on Launch from Client (requires Horizon Client already installed on your local machine) or Launch from Browser to open the virtual desktop in a separate tab. For best performance, use Horizon Client which uses Blast Extreme as the default protocol.
