Right click on databases -> restore database.

To Database = Target Name
from Device (find the bak file)

Under options, modify the MDF and LDF names to be the new database name.

If you are using sql server management studio, just right click and select restore database.

In the "To database" field, enter the new name.
Then under source for restore, select your .bak
