Strobing is determined by which refresh rate is active. The hotkeys simply switch refresh rates. You can't switch refresh rates while in a full screen game. You have to switch before starting the game. If the game doesn't use the desktop refresh rate, you have to configure the game to use the refresh rate you want.

If you have an NVIDIA card, check the NVIDIA control panel under "Manage 3D settings" and make sure "Preferred refresh rate" is set to "Application-controlled" and not "Highest available" for your monitor.

If you only have 120 Hz and 121 Hz installed, most games will either use the desktop refresh rate or 120 Hz. Some games will let you manually choose a refresh rate in the options.

If it takes a long time to switch to the desktop, that probably means the desktop and the game are using different refresh rates.
