Default Power Steering?

2000 Solara SE 63K. When I first start the car and turn the wheel all the
way to the right or left there is a high-pitched screeching sound. Never
happens any other time. Is my power steering fluid low? Just changed the
drive belts. Dealer recommended power steering flush.

Yup could be, but I always advise against turning the wheels to full lock.
You also don't mention, is the car moving at all while you do this. You're
placing a deal of pressure on the system if you are not at least rolling a
little bit when you turn the wheel. I have NEVER had trouble with any PS
components, and I have had over 200,000 miles on three Toys now! Also, I
have never flushed the PS systems on these cars!
