I've tried 2 scripts I found online but they didn't work. After the task sequence completed, the apps were still there. 

I'll post the links if which ones I used and a screenshot of my task sequence a bit later.

I use this Windows 10 remove builtin apps script with multiple version support - CCMEXEC.COM - Enterprise Mobility

I created the 20H2 files and named them 19042 as well. Then created the package. None of these applications get removed though:

microsoft.windowscommunicationsapps
Microsoft.WindowsAlarms
Microsoft.SkypeApp
Microsoft.ZuneVideo
Microsoft.ZuneMusic
Microsoft.YourPhone
Microsoft.XboxApp
Microsoft.WindowsSoundRecorder
Microsoft.Wallet
Microsoft.People
Microsoft.OneConnect
Microsoft.Office.OneNote
Microsoft.MixedReality.Portal
Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes
Microsoft.MicrosoftSolitaireCollection
Microsoft.MicrosoftOfficeHub
Microsoft.Microsoft3DViewer
Microsoft.Messaging
Microsoft.Getstarted
Microsoft.GetHelp
Microsoft.WindowsFeedbackHub               
Microsoft.WindowsMaps                      
Microsoft.BingWeather
Microsoft.XboxGameOverlay
Microsoft.XboxGamingOverlay
Microsoft.XboxIdentityProvider
Microsoft.XboxSpeechToTextOverlay

what does the removeapps log file tell you, it's in c:\windows\temp (or the smstslog folder)

I gave up using scripts in TS for removing apps. I got it to work, but it was never consistent. For some reason the script failed on every fourth or fifth computer that got setup. I use WIMwitch instead and remove the apps directly from the WIM. Works great. I highly recommend it.
