Without any FX tools?

I made a black solid layer but then I want to change color of it. How to do that? There is no any properities of that layer or something like that. Even when I click 2x on it I can't see option to change selected color.

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.
