You can change the solid color from the Format Shape properties (right-click on the shape to see this open in the contextual menu).

Then, look for Fill tab and then choose Solid fill. Now you can choose the color that will be used to fill the shape. You can also change the transparency level if you want.

Another way to change the fill options is from the Drawing Tools > Format menu on top of the PowerPoint Ribbon.

From here, click on Shape Fills having your shape selected and then choose the color in the Theme Colors area.

You can also use Standard Color or pick any recent color.

Alternatively you may want to change the texture, gradient (see PowerPoint gradient fill) or picture used to fill the shape or choose No Fill to remove the fill option for the selected shape.
