Select the solid layer.
Press Ctrl/Command-Shift-Y, or select Layer/Solid Settings.
Change the colour.
Thank you so much!
Should this not be something we can modify in the timeline? Is there any disadvantage to having it work that way?

If you have a shape layer in the timeline you can mess with its fill color in the timeline all you want. Seriously, with no layer selected, double-click on the rectangular shape layer button, and it'll make you a shape layer the size of your comp. You can apply effects to it and everything just like you would a solid.
A solid layer is treated as footage. Thus, it doesn't really have modifiable properties in the timeline.
