I think you would be settling for less if you went for desktop support, unless it is something you really like doing. But if you want to go that route, your typical Microsoft certification programs are useful. You can find out about them here:

You can definitely get a desktop support job.. provided no one rejects you Coz of over qualifications. :) Patience.. lots of patience is needed for this job. NEVER, ever, laugh at some employee's suggestion/question -- however dumb/stupid it might be. Hope you land the job in your field sooon.
