How do I restore my address book from a Windows Explore file

My laptop hard drive had to be re-formatted and I had to reinstall all my pri9grammes again including Thunderbird. Although I still have the abook.mab and history.mab folders in my My Documents folder in Windows Explore, Thunderbird is not seeing it and not accessing it. I don't want to have to re install them manually when I'm sure there must be a way of pointing Thunderbird to what is already there.
