Does the YONGNUO YN560 IV flash have a button on it that triggers the flash?
I’m confused about how this flash works. I want a flash that has a button you can press that triggers the flash that you can connect to your camera

Its best to download and fully read the manual before purchasing.
It looks like a functional flash.

Look at the owner's manual. In the first few pages there will be a diagram explain all of the buttons.
With almost all flashes, the ready light doubles as a test button that will fire the flash.
Why not just press the shutter button to trigger the flash(es) and delete as needed? It's not as if you're limited such as when shooting film?
Read your owner's manual! Flashes aren't like toilet paper where you can just intuitively use it without reading the instructions.

Flashes are triggered from within the camera when you trip the shutter release button. If the flash has its "own trigger", chances are that trigger is the "TEST" button. Not all flashes have that feature. Flashes are supposed to fire at the same time the shutter opens. Triggering the flash manually isn't the "normal" way to do it.
If you connect the flash to the camera (through the hot shoe), when you take a shot, the flash should automatically fire if the settings (and conditions) are right. To force the flash to fire, set camera to manual mode and flash to auto mode. Set camera to f/16, 1/60s. Stay at least 10 feet away from your subject. Take the shot. If the picture is too bright, step back and try again. If too dark, go nearer and try again.

Look at the answer I gave you on your next question about this. Your thinking is all wrong on how this works.

The flash mounts on the hotshoe of your camera and is triggered by the shutter release. Exposure is controlled automatically.
