If I understand well, this has nothing to do with the launchpad.
Just select the desired mode in the launch section of the clip.

@ Silence: yes i am thank you/
between the manual and searching this forum/youtube...
you've got all the info online already..
your questions are very basic ...
so one flip through the manual will take you a long way..

I don't agree with this state of mind...
Anyway, I think you should make a better formulation of your question.

well i'm trying different options for clip launching
but none seem to do what i need/
the key may be in understanding the follow actions chance a and b?/
i'm kind of lost in my approach right now/
while this might be something simple that i am asking,
i'm just not getting the result that i have in mind/

an outright answer is not the only option
if anyone can at least tell me if whether i'm on the right track/

again this is what i need to do:

my first question is pertaining to clips quantize/
i would like to be able to launch clips so the start is locked to main tempo
but ends immediately when toggled off/
there may be more than one way to do this?/

OK. Here it goes.

The only way to make it end immediately is to set quantize to "none", but that makes the launch un-quantized as well. The closest thing would probably be to set launch mode to "gate" and quantize to 16ths or something "as small as you can handle".

You're most welcome! :D

By the way - what's with the no-capital-letters-and-slashes-instead-of-full-stops?

Curious.
