Do you have SQL Server Management Studio (Express) installed on your system? If yes you can right click on the database node from the left panel and click on Attach... select the .mdf file and you will be able to attach them into the SQL Server.

Once you have attached, you can open as a normal database.

Hope this helps.

Thanks
