everytime I boot I have to run wifi-menu first in order to connect to WiFi via NetworkManager.

I tried deleting several coniguration files concerning wpa_supplicant. Maybe I haven't found the right one yet!
Is there maybe a command that could cleanse my system from all wpa_supplicant and NetworkManager config files??

Yeah I tried deleting the files mentioned, but it didn't change anything. I guess it has do to something with the WiFi I connected to during the installation of Arch. Doesn't anyone have a clue about what it could be?
Not sure if I'm on the right track here, but you can start/stop/enable/disable etc NetworkManager with:
systemctl start NetworkManager
wifi-menu will not work if NetworkManager is running and vice-versa.
I use NetworkManager, but if I don't boot into a gui cause somethings broken, then I have to stop NetworkManager in order for wifi-menu to work. Apparently NetworkManager is not the 'best' solution but it works well enough for me. I'm relatively new to all this, so don't take my word
