How do I open an excel file in Excel 365 (app) in write protected mode?

It was easy with the desktop version of excel (e.g. 2016) by creating a short cut to the Excel file in question and the following in the short cut:

"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office15\EXCEL.EXE" /r "D:\excelfile.xlsx"

Since Office switched to "Apps", this is no longer possible. Of course I could open the file with another program or set the file "read only" or write a script to do it for me, which seems rather "complicated". Is there an easy work around?
