Negdistrib

-- Option variable: negdistrib Default value: true

When negdistrib is true, -1 distributes over an expression. E.g., -(x + y) becomes - y - x. Setting it to false will allow - (x + y) to be displayed like that. This is sometimes useful but be very careful: like the simp flag, this is one flag you do not want to set to false as a matter of course or necessarily for other than local use in your Maxima.
