It depends. If it's a big round switch on the floor you have to find something to put on it., like a companion cube. Otherwise the default interact button is E, but it might be different depending on how you have your controls mapped.

Some of the buttons need cubes to activate them

Follow the tutorial for better info :)

you either stand on top of them or you drop a cube onto them. unless it's a small button, in which case the default interact button is 'e'.

Press E (or your default action button, look in your settings under "Keyboard") to pick up boxes, drop boxes, and finally PRESS RED BUTTONS!

Press E to "interact" with things. To activate large red buttons, you need to place cubes on them, just like in Portal 1.
